Chris Horodecki (born September 24, 1987) is a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter. He is fighting as a lightweight and currently competes in World Extreme Cagefighting.

Mixed Martial ArtsEdit

Horodecki was born in Poland and moved to London, Ontario, Canada as a youth. At age 13, he attended a seminar run by Shawn Tompkins in Ontario and was hooked.[1]

He developed his skills quickly, particularly his striking, and just days after his 18th birthday dispatched his first opponent, a 29-year-old with eleven previous bouts.

International Fight LeagueEdit

Chris made his debut knocking out Erik Owings at IFL: Championship 2006. He then scored victories over Ed West, Ryan Schultz, Bart Palaszewski, Josh Odom and Shad Lierley. Chris then defeated Bart Palaszewski again that earned him a spot in the finals for the lightweight title.

Horodecki was upset by Ryan Schultz in the finals of the 2007 IFL Grand Prix, failing to become the first IFL Lightweight Champion.

Following his first career loss, Horodecki rebounded with a unanimous decision victory over veteran Nate Lamotte.[2]


Chris was originally scheduled to fight Dan Lauzon at Affliction: Day of Reckoning but was denied his license for failing his physical. [3] Chris is suffering from a bulging disc in his neck, and has lost about 80% of his strength in his right arm. The fight was rescheduled to the next event, Affliction: Trilogy but the event was canceled.


Horodecki's coach Shawn Tompkins announced on October 19, 2009 that Chris had agreed on a contract with World Extreme Cagefighting.[4] He made his WEC debut against Anthony Njokuani on December 19, 2009 at WEC 45.[5] Horodecki lost via first round TKO, after inexplicably turning his back to his opponent while attempting to create distance, resulting in a highlight reel headkick for Njokuani.

Horodecki is expected to face Ed Ratcliff on June 20, 2010 at WEC 49.[6]

Personal lifeEdit

Chris currently teaches MMA Striking at Adrenaline Mix Martial arts in London, Ontario with fellow WEC fighter Mark Hominick. Chris is also studying to become a paramedic. [7]
